completed - BEAUSITE LAKE INTER-TRUST LAND EXCHANGE 86-090570
DNR exchanged 305 acres of State Forest Land Trust near Beausite Lake in Jefferson County for an equal valued parcel of Common School Trust forestland of approximately 320 acres located near Anderson Lake in Jefferson County. This re-designation of trust land tracts put Jefferson County in position to acquire the Beausite Lake property from the Common School Trust through the state’s Trust Land Transfer (TLT) program to use for recreation, wildlife habitat or open-space purposes. Legislatively appropriated TLT funds compensate the Common School Trust for the value of the property transferred to Jefferson County.
